RCPE Cardiology Symposium

Date: 26th October 2022
All-day event
Location: Edinburgh & Online
Events

Cardiovascular medicine is rapidly evolving.  Guidelines are frequently updated to reflect best care but keeping up-to-date is a challenge.

This symposium will open with a session on ‘What’s New’ in the recently revamped guidelines on Heart Failure, Cardio Vascular Disease prevention, and Cardio-oncology.

Our second session challenges us to consider when to diverge from guidelines in the interest of individualised care.  Dr John Mandrola’s Keynote will help us sift through data identifying meaningful therapeutic interventions for our patients amidst the spin of publication.

In the afternoon delegates will attend two of four practical ‘How To’ breakout sessions. These are case-based and interactive offering tips and tricks for managing patients wherever you are.

For the final session we have an expert panel to reflect the views of physicians, cardiologists, general practitioners, surgeons, and patients.  We welcome your participation in this interactive Multi Disciplinary Team. Four real cases will be presented.  They will challenge the Multi Disciplinary Team to consider the updated Valvular Heart Disease guidelines and individualise treatment in the context of comorbidity and frailty.

All the parallel sessions will also be available to view on-demand, allowing delegates to catch up on all the sessions for up to 28 days following the original broadcast.

This symposium is designed to deliver practical, practice changing, education whether you are a Medical Student, Trainee, General Physician, Cardiologist or GP.  We hope you will join us in October 2022

Ten Years of TAVI – 15 November

Date: 15th November 2022
All-day event
Location: Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh
Events

Date: 15th November 2022
Venue : The Great Hall, The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, 9 Queen Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1JQ

It is now just over 10 years since the TAVI was implanted in Scotland. During this period there has been a lot of learning about the assessment of patients with aortic stenosis, planning of the TAVI procedure as well as evolution of the procedure against an ever increasing data and evidence base for the indications for the procedure. The Edinburgh TAVI Team believe that it is now time to reflect on the successes and the learning and to share this with colleagues in Cardiology, Medicine and Care of the Elderly Medicine. Aortic stenosis is the commonest Valve lesion found in Cardiology and will present increasingly commonly as our patients live longer and their management is relevant to all Physicians.
